365 Atlanta Family, LLC is a digital resource for families who believe that life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
Recently named one of the Top 50 Travel Blogs in the world, we are champions of exploring the great outdoors, seeking out hidden gems, and unearthing the goodness within reach of our home here in the Southeast. We believe in stepping out of the comforts of a regularly-scheduled life, and tuning into an extraordinary adventure– with the entire family in tow. We also encourage dating your someone-special, and never, ever waiting to open that expensive bottle of wine because every day should be celebrated.
Lesli Peterson, Owner, Editor & CEO, made her way to Atlanta over 20 years ago, after living in Germany, Japan and six U.S. states. She relishes the discovery of obscure, offbeat and unwonted places, and she will chat up any willing stranger to uncover a new secret locale.
After 18 years in software development, Lesli bailed on the corporate scene. She now serves as the Family Travel Ambassador for Georgia, and freelances for several publications in addition to writing here. When she’s not traveling, she’s hiking in the mountains or checking out Atlanta’s culinary scene, whiskey in hand.
Lesli has two kiddos (Cooper and Elliot) and two bonus teens, and she’s happily married to her soul mate.
Sue Rodman, Travel Editor & Advertising Manager, is a mother of three boys, a PR professional, writer, and ice cream lover.

In Sept. 2016 Field Trips with Sue merged with 365 Atlanta Family.
In addition to writing blog posts and managing the advertising and public relations for 365 Atlanta Family, Sue does freelance public relations and her writing has appeared online at TravelingMom, Trekaroo, Minitime Family and other family travel sites. She has contributed to print publications such as Family Fun, Simply Buckhead, BuckHaven and Publix Magazine. In addition, Sue has appeared on local and national news talking about family travel. Sue believes anytime is a good time for dessert and there are no bad field trips, just better stories. @SueRodman
